    Episode 9 (chord Qualities)

    Episode 9 (chord Qualities)

    I will play a 4 note voicing consisting of the root, 3rd, 5th, and 7th and you have to guess the quality of the chord. You're choices are major 7, major 7b5, major 7#5, minor/major 7, minor 7, half diminished 7, full diminished 7, dominant 7, dominant 7b5, dominant 7#5. I will play the chord twice, tell you the answer, then arpeggiate the chord

    Episode 8 (II - V progressions)

    Episode 8 (II - V progressions)

    This exercise will help you to hear II - V progressions. I will play two II - V progressions consecutively and you need to distinguish the interval between them. For example if I give you Dmi7 - G7 - Ebmi7 - Ab7 then the answer would be a half step up because the second II - V progression is a half step up from the first. These different types of progressions are common in jazz music and if you are able to distinguish between them you will have a better understanding of the music and will hopefully allow you to eventually learn jazz tunes by ear.
